B.S. Theatre

conc. Performance & Directing

m. Spanish

Graduated summa cum laude


located at Northwestern State University

Natchitoches, Louisiana

This seminar- and literature-based program focused on allowing students an individualized education, making it possible for me to focus on storytelling in both the practical and intellectual forms. 

Through intense discussion-forward classes, which focused on shaping our writing skills and presentation-focused theatre projects, I was able to hone my practical skills as an editor and writer, as well as verse myself in the art of telling a quality story and highlighting individual voices through that art. 


These skills culminated in an undergraduate thesis, Playwriting, the Right to Creative Power Over History: Ethical or Not? and Emilia, an original play.
